Use the Template Settings Page to control Automatic Templates, Quick Labels and the Consent Button.
You can also create or delete Template Collections here.
To open the Template Settings page, click on the menu icon and choose Settings.
Auto templates save you time writing the same thing over and over again. They're great for note entries that are likely to be the same for every note, such as your assistant's name or practice/clinic location.
Type or change the text in the fields.
Press save to update changes.
Verify your note template – it will appear in your notes exactly as displayed within the grey highlighted area.
Check the box to make this template activate every time you create a new note (or un-check to disable automatic behaviour).
Auto templates can be easily and quickly updated from this page whenever the details change.
This template is added when you click on the 'checkbox' in the Notepad. We use VCO (short for, verbal consent obtained) but you can change it to anthying. If you don't want to use this function, use the switch to hide the checkbox from view.
Quick Labels can be used for things like drug batch numbers (eg local anaesthetics) or laboratory names. These are things that don't change very often, but when you need to update the details, you'll be able to do so quickly and easily from the settings page. If you add a Quick Update Label to one your general note templates, both the 'Label Description' and the 'Label' will be added to your note template automatically every time you use it.
All templates where you’ve used a Quick Update Label will be displayed on the Template Settings Page.
You can quickly change the 'Label' from this screen. So for instance, when you change to a new batch number, just update the new number here. This new number will update your main template.
See the guides section on Making Templates to learn how to add a Quick Label to one of your templates.
A Collection is a folder of different templates organised by categories.
You could have different Collections for different purposes. Alternatively you could keep all your templates in a single Collection.
From the note writing screen (the Notepad) it's easy to switch Collections by pressing the options toggle.
To make a new Collection follow the steps below:
Press the green 'Create Collection' button.
A new field will appear. Type in a name/label for your new Collection then press Save to update changes.
Select the relevant radio button for that Collection to choose which one you wish to use in the Note Pad. (you can only use one Collection at a time).
Permanently delete a Collection by pressing the minus icon.
WARNING: if you delete a Collection it is not possible to get it back.
Rename your collection then press save.
